Wherever you are in the world, Christmas city lights always look better when viewed from above. Looking down from a Ferris wheel, you'll feel the unforgettable excitement of the festive season, whether you're in a classic Christmas destination or somewhere a little more exotic. Let's read more about the best views over Paris, Berlin, Toronto, London and Melbourne—or even Singapore. A fabulous range of destinations!

Celebrating Christmas from the extraordinary London Eye

Celebrating Christmas from the extraordinary London Eye

You're high above the Thames on London's South Bank, and from your London Eye vantage point you look down on the city sights: Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and, in the distance, Buckingham Palace...

From the comfort of your panoramic capsule, you remember the giant Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square, the carols you've heard, Greenwich market... And you're already looking forward to the next stop on your London Christmas break: Hyde Park, with its skating rink and Winter Wonderland ice palace! Merry Christmas!

Surveying Berlin's Christmas sights

Surveying Berlin's Christmas sights

After your toboggan ride through the snow, you're now sipping a Christmas punch at the Potsdamer Platz Christmas market. Up above, you spot the Kollhoff Tower and decide to ride up to its "Panoramapunkt," an unmissable viewpoint on your Berlin Christmas break.

Up on the 25th floor, you take a moment to recover after the ultrarapid elevator ascent. Before you, all of Berlin is laid out: the Reichstag building, the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral and even the Teufelsberg hill. A Christmas view to die for!

Having festive fun in Melbourne

Having festive fun in Melbourne

Your Melbourne break has just begun, and already the sunny weather is making Christmas feel like the summer holidays! After a trip to Brighton Beach, you head for the attractions of the Wonderland Fun Park, by the banks of the city's Yarra River.

There, settled in a capsule of the Star Observation Wheel, you sip on a glass of Australian wine while enjoying the stunning Melbourne views. In the distance you can make out Mount Macedon, Port Phillip Bay and the Dandenong Ranges National Park...

Celebrating Christmas on Singapore's big wheel

Celebrating Christmas on Singapore's big wheel

Still a little dazzled by the brilliant lights of Orchard Road and its shops, you make your way to one of the world's largest Ferris wheels: the Singapore Flyer.

As night falls over Singapore, you enjoy picking out the shimmering sights of the city... Look, the Marina Bay Sands hotel, the skyscrapers of Raffles Place, the gardens of Fort Canning... But where's the famous Merlion Park? That decides it—for an even better view, you head for the Mount Faber cablecar, the final stop on your Singapore stay.

Enjoying family fun at Christmas on Toronto's Centre Island

Enjoying family fun at Christmas on Toronto's Centre Island

Wrapped up warmly like the Canadians around you, you take a pleasure cruise on Lake Ontario. As you reach Centre Island, you can already see the rides of Centreville Amusement Park and its antique Ferris wheel! From your seat, you have a lovely view of Toronto's snowy skyline.

For even more spectacular views during your Toronto Christmas break, you take the glass elevator of the famous CN Tower. From 350 metres above the ground, near the Rogers Centre stadium, you enjoy an unforgettable panorama. Merry Christmas!

Savouring the sights of Christmas from the Roue de Paris

Savouring the sights of Christmas from the "Roue de Paris"

From the Roue de Paris big wheel you look down over the snowy Tuileries to the famous Louvre. Your vantage point high above the Place de la Concorde gives you a stunning view.

On that first evening of your Paris break, you see how the "City of Light" earned its name. The illuminated Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe look almost unreal. Continuing on your way, you are drawn by the aromas of the city's Champs-Élysées Christmas market, which transforms the grand boulevard into a festive feast for the senses...
